        I couldn't agree more...THANKS HOWIE!!

        I wish I could have gotten pics of Howie driving the tractor or carrying cinder blocks to the shore. I thought both of those clearly demonstrated Howie's character...he'll jump in and help out in any and all ways. Great to see!

        Thanks also to the rest of the crew: Monica, Pete, Charlie, John, and others who kept the races moving along with all the challenges the drivers threw at them.

        Super fun race and weekend!

        - Mike

              Thank you everyone. It was a team effort by all. John Runne as the Referee, Monica Allen as the Scorer, Charlie Gonyea as the Asst Referee, Bud Gann as the Risk Manager, Jeff Williams & RC Hawie as the Inspectors, Pete & Becky Nichols for all the support and help, Charlie Blackwood for doing anything and everything, The Nuccio;s, and everyone that pitched in to help at the end of the weekend with cleanup, all the drivers who did there time and then some in the patrol boats and on the judges stand, and everyone who came. It takes all of us to make a successful event and each of you are appreciated even if I get short with you at times. Thank you and see you all next year!

                  First time visit for us and we will go back! Great water and location, enjoyed the Shriners dinner and concessions, and getting sunshine and water time does wonders for northern moods this time of year! Many thanks to Howie and his team for a great break this spring!

                    I too would like to give a huge thank you out to Howie as well as to the entire staff of this race. You folks made the trip a very enjoyable one for us.

                    Big thank yous out to the Hebert Racing Team as well as the Baze Racing Team (traveling all the way down from Illinois to help pit for us) for all of the help during this event. Special shout outs to Gary Miller and also the VanOver/Johnson team for helping to make sure we were 100% legal in all regards come race time. (And for allowing me to borrow a helmet for the weekend.. haha.) Also have to thank Team Innovative Automotive. Joe John and Matt gave me a 500ccMH ride for the weekend. I really enjoyed it. Very much appreciated, dudes.
